LIVERPOOL’S POCKETS OF PARADISE – A Local’s Perspective.
Often times we share our travel series, where we explore new destinations. In this episode, we’d like to share with you the exotic side of our adopted city. Our home for the last 20 years. The hidden treasures, Liverpool’s pockets of paradise right on our doorstep.
In the old days, Manchester was preferred to Liverpool by the powers that be. But with the EU, Liverpool’s fortunes turned….Even though we face BREXIT today.
Liverpool’s pockets of paradise are nestled on the Mersey River Banks estuary. A stretch of river developments with a dock and promenade here and there on the natural waters of the Mersey.
During the summer season, the backdrop turns exotic with tall boats and even mega cruise liners like the Two Queen Marys. And you can while away the day kayaking, paddle boarding or take the Mersey ferry across the river to Birkenhead and the Wirral.
At very low tides, you wouldn’t want to be paddle boarding though…
There is not an ice cream van on the Albert Dock promenade, unless there is a special summer show.
